Freshly Made Sketches #222 seems perfect for creating a masculine card. Those are often difficult, and nature images usually work best for me. I embossed a panel of Chocolate card stock with the wood grain folder. The image is from a Close To My Heart set called Friend Tree, stamped in Chocolate and Sweet Leaf. The top notched piece is from the end strip on a retired paper set. I collect those ends strips and save them in a zip lock bag. They come in handy!!
I have missed the link-up time on this challenge, but it is a great sketch that I will use again.
